Spectra Fashions
Macy is on the phone talking to a reporter from Eye On Fashion. She tells Sally that he wanted a quote on the new designer that was hired at Forrester's. Sally didn't realize that they had hired someone. Clarke tells them that Brooke hired Morgan, who was a former model at Forrester's. Sally can't believe that Brooke would hire someone without Eric's consent because that had always been his job. Clarke tells them that Morgan is an intelligent, but mischievous woman. He tells them that she is nobody's patsy. C.J. tells Clarke that he seems to have it bad for Morgan. Macy thinks that Brooke may have hired Morgan to get back at Thorne for marrying her.

Forrester Creations
Ridge and Eric are discussing Brooke when Morgan comes up to them. She wants to know what is going on between them and Brooke, but Eric tells her that it is personal. Morgan tells them that she is the right person for the job. She said that another designer might not have the affinity for the company or for the family. She said that she was sure that she could help them work through their problems with Brooke. Rick interrupts to discuss a problem with his dad. After Eric leaves, Morgan and Ridge discuss the old days. She looks at a design of Ridge's and tells him that his designs lack the passion and the sensuality that they used to have. She asks him what has happened to him. She says that he has become conservative. He shows her another sketch that he was working on, and she tells him that was more his style. They discuss how Morgan wore the first gown that he ever designed and how they snuck it on the runway without Eric's approval, but it worked out because he got great reviews from the critics. He tells Morgan that she helped to launch his career. She tells him that she was young and in love, so she did foolish things. They are still reminiscing about the past when Taylor comes in. Morgan asks Taylor if she can help her, but Taylor says that Ridge can. Taylor then kisses Ridge. Ridge introduces the two women. Morgan said that she was hired to bust Ridge's chops. Ridge gives Morgan some more of his designs to look at and tells her that they were for her eyes only. Taylor wanted to know why Ridge wanted to see her, and he said that he just wanted to see his wife. Morgan is outside the door watching them as they kiss. She then flashes back in time to a fashion show from years ago. Ridge is dressed kind of like a hippie and the song " Call Me" by Blondie is playing. Morgan is telling him how brilliant he is and that his dad will probably let him design. He tells her that it is all because of her. She jumps into his arms and they kiss. Morgan has a wistful look on her face as she comes back to the present and continues to watch Taylor and Ridge. Eric and Rick are discussing Little Eric. Rick says that he doesn't know if he can stand not seeing the baby. Eric tells him that he had spoken with a lawyer and that Rick didn't have any legal rights to the baby. Rick said that they had to do something to stop Becky from taking the baby back to Paris. Meanwhile Becky and Amber are discussing the baby. Amber said that she would really miss the baby. Becky tells her that she wishes that she could stay in LA, but her job was in Paris. Eric calls Becky and tells her that he wants to see her at his office. He tells her that she would not be going back to Paris. He tells her that he had spoken with her boss, and that they had hired another girl to take her place. Becky wants to know how she is supposed to support the baby without a job. Eric tells her that she would be working in LA. He tells her that they still consider Little Eric to be a part of their family. Rick tells her that he stills wants to see the baby as often as he can. Becky tells them that Amber was right about them, when she said that they wouldn't turn their backs on the baby. Eric said that this was the one time that Amber was right.
